    Canvas Days: Moving from Blackboard to Canvas

    11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
    Lauinger Library - Murray Room
    Register // Zoom Link

    Open to all Georgetown faculty and staff, the goal of this workshop is to introduce faculty who are familiar with Blackboard to Canvas and to help them understand the functional differences between the two platforms. The workshop will address the following questions:

    • What are the core differences between Canvas and Blackboard?
    • How might moving to Canvas change my course design, the way I communicate with students, and the way students get the course materials and do their work?
    • What do faculty who have moved from Blackboard to Canvas say about the transition?

    Remember to bring your laptop!

    Part of Canvas Days, a series of workshops and drop-in sessions covering the ins and outs of Canvas, from adding content to enabling external tools.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
